House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer were among the Democrat leaders in both chambers who won new terms in the midterm elections.

Pelosi, who has been in Congress since 1987, won with 81.4 percent of the vote in the race to represent California’s 11th Congressional District.

The House Speaker beat Republican John Dennis, who once described Pelosi as “the ultimate swamp monster.”

Chuck Schumer, who has been in Congress since 1981, won 55 percent of the vote over Joe Pinion, a journalist who said it was time for fresh blood in Washington.

“To the people of New York: I am so proud and so humbled to be able to continue to fight to deliver real results for New York in the U.S. Senate. I’m honored to serve as your Senator, and I’ll never stop fighting for you!” Schumer said in a statement.

Almost every other Democrat leader running for new terms won reelection:

  • House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.), 83
  • House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-S.C.), 82
  • House Assistant Speaker Katherine Clark (D-Mass.), 59
  • Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.), 52

Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.), 72, survived a scare, while Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.), 58, may have suffered defeat—Masto’s race against former Nevada Attorney General Adam Laxalt, is too close to call.

  • House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), 57
  • House Republican Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.), 57
  • House Republican Conference Chairwoman Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.), 38
  • House Republican Policy Committee Chairman Gary Palmer (R-Ala.), 68
